Luxury Watches as Investment – 1 Why Investing?

Why Investing?

The monetary value of all currencies melts like butter in the sun. Monetary stability, even the world’s major currencies, such as the US dollar and the Euro, are simply no longer there today for political reasons. Monetary stability is passe.

Since the introduction of the ‘currency’ US dollar in 1971, since the dollar is no longer ‘money’ but only a ‘currency’, since the gold coverage of every single dollar has been removed, the US dollar has lost 90\% of its value. And the Euro seems to want to outdo him in that.

★★★★★ Great book for watch enthusiasts! »This is the second e-book from this author, that I’ve read. He has a nice, clear writing style and definitely he has lots of insight on what makes a particular watch brand and watch model valuable. I thought the omission of Grand Seiko was somewhat odd, but it is still a great book.«

Mathematics - Description or Truth

Mathematics - Description or Truth

Modern science, in essence since Newton and Leibnitz, uses mathematics with great success to model natural phenomena. ‘Modelling’ means that the behaviour of nature is described by mathematical equations, that by calculating them allow a prediction for the result of the natural event. But is mathematics just a great tool, or is there a more basic hidden truth?

The best ebook readers to read everywhere and anytime, ad home, riding the sub, riding a train, on a plane… you get the idea.


Apple iPhone

Apple iPhone

My personal favourite is: the iPhone. Since Apple introduced the high resolution Retina Display with the iPhone 4 and especially since the large 4,7” Display of the iPhone 6 it is the nearly perfect ebook-Reader on the planet. The Display is crisp and sharp and the device is lightweight and comfortable to hold in your hand – and the best thing is: you have it with you all the time. Of course you can read ebooks from the Apple iBooks-Store, but with Apps, you can also use any other shop, be it the Amazon Kindle Shop, Google Play Store or the Tolino Shop. And of course: it is a phone, a digital camera, a HD-Video camera, a computer, a calender and an address book, a… infinite possibilities and much more than just an ebook reader…

The Rolex Cyclops Lens

Is the Cyclops Lens Quintessentially Rolex?

Things change. You adapt. You learn.

First you hate it. The Cyclops date magnification lens. You cannot think of anything but hating it. That ugly blob of sapphire over the date window. That unnecessary disturbance of the sapphire crystal’s clear and flat elegance. That unnecessary magnifier for old people who can’t remember what day it is. It destroys the looks of so many Rolexes. Watches that otherwise could be pretty.

Vintage Rolex Models

What are Vintage Rolex Watches

If someone speaks of vintage Rolex models he usually does not mean the models from the 1990s and 2000s we described in the last chapter.

Rolex vintage models are considered those classical models from the 1970s and 1960s, some even from the 1950s and -40s. These watches are around 50 years old and are considered valuable, because the extremely robust movements still work as expected and there are not very many of them around, what makes them very collectible and expensive.

Nearly every Rolex watch that matters is called ‘Oyster Perpetual’ before anything else characterizes it more specific like ‘Cosmograph’ or ‘Sea-Dweller’. What is this Oyster Perpetual stuff all about? Was the founder a lover of oysters and ate them regulary every day?

No, of course not. We should not make jokes about Rolex as this swiss stuff is all quite serious.

What Rich People Do

What Rich People do and What You can Learn from Them

You must understand one thing: To become, be and stay rich you must think and act like rich people do. They absolutely know why they are doing certain things, even if they don’t tell everyone why. The first and most basic mistake poor people make is that they think rich people wouldn’t act reasonable - basically because they themselves don’t.

The Rolex Explorer

I finally accepted that I had become a Rolex fan. Something I had never expected had come true.

But as I understood now, the simple truth is that the success of Rolex is based mainly on two simple facts: their watches are technically brillant and probably the best on the market. Rolex focuses obviously on the right things people appreciate: reliability, continuity, value. No experiments, no nonsense, no extravagance.

That’s all. That’s what makes great products.

The Rolex Yacht-Master

I first saw the Yacht-Master with the platinum dial in italy worn by an elderly Brit in the pool. Now, if you meet Brits on vacation they often wear strange things at the pool: shorts and business shoes with socks for example. But this guy wore a Rolex Yacht-Master in the pool playing with his grandchildren. That was kinda cool. But much cooler than that was the look of the watch itself.

The Fake

Is A Fake Luxury Watch Any Good At All?

Of course I wanted a Hublot. But I wasn’t so sure if it was a good investment. For an ETA based cool design case from unconventional materials and with a size unclear if still fashionable in another 5 or 10 years, in short: more a hip fasion piece than an eternal piece of luxury, I was not willing to pay the hipster pricetag of 12.000 bucks. For 3000 or 5000 it would have been reasonable, because the fancy design would find its lovers even if smaller watches would be again en vogute, but 12.000! No way.

But I still wanted one.

What are Seriously Cool Watches?

What are Seriously Cool Watches

What all these watches have in common is, as we found out, not exactly and not only their ridiculously high price. They have in common that you cannot see their magnificence on a picture. You at least have to see them, better hold them in your hands, best, put them on your wrist where they belong. Believe me, even if you find them like ‘ok’ on a photo, you have to see them in reality to decide if you like them or not.

What are the Top Watch Brands?

If you purchase a luxury watch, you want a ›real‹ luxury watch, not just some ridiculously expensive watch. And there are not so many top shelf luxury watch manufacturers as you might expect.
